The Berg Sans Nipple | Ghost

The Franco-American duo The Berg Sans Nipple consists of Lori Sean Berg and Shane Aspegren (sometimes joined by other musicians). The former is a suave Frenchman from Paris and the latter is a lanky Scandinavian-looking fellow who actually hails from the dusty plains of Nebraska. Once rumored to have been Siamese twins separated at birth (according to them, their relationship is really much closer to that of Ghost Dog and the ice cream vendor), the reality is only more mundane at first glance: two kids (both best known as drummers) trapped in a tangled mess of cables, keyboards, samplers, horns, bells, machines and drums. The music for the short film Marie-Madeleine, soundtrack-EP (2002) was a first glimpse into one of the more landscape-filled directions that the bsn has taken, combining textured minimalism, emancipated-rock, a distorted view of chanson française (with guest vocals from the contemporary French legend Dominique A.) and electronica.
